Care home testing
If your care homes ask you how they can get residents tested or they have any queries about a possible outbreak they have to call PHE directly, who also communicate any test results directly back to the care homes. Tel. 0300 303 8537…option 5.
Any patients discharged from hospital to a care home that’s still awaiting results, their results are communicated through the Care Home Intervention Team (CHIT) to the care home.
